Orchestra Bob is here to lead you on an exciting journey through the world of classical music. Listen, learn and enjoy as he cues powerful works from the greatest composers in the world. Along the way, he'll tell you wonderful and wacky stories about deaf composers, quirky musicians and the inspirations behind the great works.

You'll hear Wagner's powerful Ride of the Valkyries and imagine the warrior goddesses on horseback storming through the battlefields. Beethoven will inspire you with selections from his two most famous pieces, the 5th and 9th symphonies, and Stravinsky will shock you with his eerie The Rite of Spring.

Then, Orchestra Bob will introduce you to the beautiful instruments of the orchestra, from common ones that you have probably seen and heard to rare and weird-looking ones that produce strange sounds.

Includes CD with 37 selections from the greatest composers—over an hour's worth of music!
